the tea party and the future of the republican party. welcome to the "washington journal." guest: thanks for having me. i'm happy to be here. host: we've got an article here from the "christian science monitor" with the headline, "will the tea party compromise"" he writes, tea partiers may be more amenable to an agreement on tax revenues now that the electorate has signaled it doesn't especially like what the tea party has been up to. he goes on to say, if there's a mandate in yesterday's results, said speaker john boehner on yesterday, it's a mandate to find a way for us to work together. republicans, he said, are willing to accept new revenue under the right conditions to get a bipartisan agreement over the budget. your thoughts about what robert reich had to say and what the speaker is saying. guest: well, you know, i think that we need to find some common ground. obviously we're facing this fiscal cliff, so we have to find some common ground. everybody's talking about revenue, nobody's talking about cutting. that's really what we need to be focusing on, because you can tax people int
that demographic shift. i remember when i came to washington. i remember writing an article for it -- remember that --public opinion magazine? >> yeah. i think you will see people start to write about a democratic electoral lock due to the changing demographics. we are seeing an electorate where the democrats are doing well among african-americans, hispanics, asians, younger voters, and white liberals. now that needle appears to have moved slightly to the democrats, so that if you have a kind of normal base election, the democrats have a very slight advantage. i think most people say we will continue to grow over time, unless the republicans do something to make inroads into some of the court demographics. if you look at the house races, you have to be cautious because the -- about the big message you are drawing. yes, the democrats gained what looks to me by my count about eight house seats. half their gains have to do with coming from illinois and california and are largely redistricting gains. but republican still control the house. what would you say was the democrats' message this electio
in september at the u.n., and now we have interesting results from two states here from washington state and from colorado. in addition to the many states -- i think there are 17 or 18 -- where marijuana can be used for medicinal purposes. in these two states, they can be used for recreational purposes. there we have the pressure from the region joined with some of the pressure and trends in shift in public opinion in the u.s., which i think will contribute an ad to greater pressure on the administration at the national level to rethink its policy on drugs, which is clearly having very negative effects are perceived to having negative effects in terms of crime, violence, and corruption in many countries in latin america. i think obama administration will probably say it has done some things to move forward on this issue, talking about shared responsibility, but i think despite some changes in the discourse, the essential elements of the policy have been pretty unchanged until now. again, this does open some -- possibilities. the reaction in mexico will be particularly critical to see whe

to the washington area arriving outside of washington. thursday on washington journal with both chambers returning to washington next week, we will speak with our guest about what lies ahead and scott wilson. washington journal is life every morning at 7:00 a.m. eastern. analysts and the former director participated in a bipartisan panel examining the next steps for the president and congress hosted by laszlo strategies. this is over an hour. >> who loo>> good morning. welcome. i am founder and president of this organization which is laszlo strategies. it does strategic communication but we're not partisan and i am very honored and delighted to have a terrific set of panels to offer the audience today. we have to audiences, a live audience here, we are in the rayburn office building in a hearing room of the foreign affairs committee. i would like to thank congressman berman for his service. it is an incredible thing to have to serve or be willing to serve. it is a painful process to go through negative campaigning. i think the american voters odette of gratitude to all who are willing to serve whe
here in washington. that includes his number one priority, which is jobs and economic growth. on the issues of the approach we need to take to ensure we have the right economic policy, the right fiscal policy to help the economy grow and help it continue to create jobs. he is also focused on his national security agenda. he has great confidence in the acting c.i.a. director. he has confidence in his military and the secretary of defense and defense department to carry out the missions that he's assigned to them. he's got a lot he wants to work on and is doing that this week. >> how does that affect his need to advance his security team? >> these are specific questions about specific individuals and posts. i can say now even though you haven't asked that i have no announcements to make with regards to personnel. the president has not made decisions on personnel matters. and you will not hear me discuss them until the president has made those decisions and has announced them. >> these are two of the top military brass either involved in extramarital affair or inappropriate beha
. if it's a close race, that tells me something. just a few examples. host: washington, d.c., on our independent line. caller: i am interested to know where you think independent voters are going to go in this election. i don't mean just in terms of republican or democrat. how are the third party candidates going to affect the election? in particular, gary johnson? a lot of people tend to think he will take away votes from the republican nominee, but i think in new mexico and michigan he is taking votes away from obama. if you could give me some insight into what you think will happen there. guest: that is a good question because we tend to oversimplified about independent and third-party candidates. we need to remember first of all some people turn out to vote for them that would not make a choice between the two major party candidates. maybe they would show up and vote for a member of congress or the local sheriff, i don't know. but it is not as though all of those votes are taken from a major party candidate. that is simply not true. having said that, it is true some votes are tak
on the nashville association of broadcasters board of directors here in washington, d.c. as i go through this litany of things that dan mckinnon did, we can see -- mckinon did, we can see his faith in god, his selfless service to country and christianity played through throughout his entire life. he ran for congress. he tried to get in this body in 1980. he had an unsuccessful run for congress in 1980 but the next year, president reagan nominated him to lead the federal civil aeronautics board which basically oversaw the deregulation of all the airlines. as i know, as somebody that wants less government and less big brother intervention, dan mckinon was the man after he did his work on the civil aeronautics board and deregulated the airline industry so we have what we have now which is competition and low rates and extremely high safety measures, he shut down his own board that president reagan started. rarely in washington, d.c. do you see a person that starts some kind of board or blue ribbon panel or commission and actually closes it down on themselves after they've done the work that
that got us into that mess, sending one of them to washington dc. >> moderator: thank you. king: olympia snowe left because she wanted to spend more time with her family, she left because she said the place and in function and she couldn't get anything done. she was utterly frustrated. i believe that we have to try to do something different in order to respond to that challenge, and that's why i am running for the united states senate as an independent. this makes a real difference in peoples people's lives. this isn't about processes. this is about solving the problems that the nation faces. for example, there was a bill before the senate that would have benefited veterans across the country and it was filibustered because the party in the senate -- they didn't want the president have a victory before the election. that is a terrible way to make decisions. the concern should have been for the veterans and not for the politics. >> moderator: thank you. summers: we are spending a trillion dollars a year year more than we take in and that is simply unsustainable. i want to go to washington
supported them. the theatrics in washington -- we have heard a lot of callers talk about this. i don't know if they have a place right now. this is an extremely urgent thing they have to address. it could have real consequences on recovery, really end it, and i do not think we will see a lot of that. i do not think the president wants to strike that tone. i think it will be pretty serious. it does not mean they will not try to get together in some kind of setting, but i do not think it will be seen the light it was in summer 2011. host: we want to thank our two white house reporters. thank you both for being here. that does it for today's "washington journal." we will be back tomorrow at 7:00 a.m. with more of your questions and comments via phone and twitter. thanks for watching. host: [captioning performed by national captioning institute] [captions copyright national cable satellite corp. 2012] emma we continue with election analysis to date on the c-span networks -- >> we continue with election analysis. coming up, we will be live with congressional quarterly's election analysis. a seri
of the national committee can do. would you do interfere in primaries, it is washington dictating and party bosses dictating. you get what you get. look what happens. they heard not just themselves, but they heard the entire party's brand. and enormously talented group of people that did not deserve what they got here. that was the outcome. it looks like democrats probably will pick up a seat. then you get to the house. the house seesawed a little bit. well within the frame of what we were expecting, somewhere between a wash and democrats picked up 10 seats. we had a broad think of anywhere from republicans picking up a seed or two or democrats picking up eight. right now we are looking like it is in the five-eight seats to gain for democrats. i think the gust of wind at the end helped them, too. is he saw a little bit in the evening. early on it looked like republicans were doing very well. there was one. it looks like republicans were going to pick up some seats. then you started seeing -- who would have thought that? alan west losing. it went on, it sort of was kicking back over a little bit to
lynch from george washington university. we will give him a chance to catch his breath. >> one country that is pro american in the riege -- region today, and yet also the country where there was an attack on our diplomatic outpost in ben -- benghazi. >> one thing important to know about libya is that even though in terms of its size, land mass, it looks a lot like egypt, in terms of actual population it is a very small country. an eight-hour drive within each other. getting back to the information age, the younger kids are all very well connected. there is still a lack of organized information among libyans themselves. for example my father was a half a mile away from the embassies when this happened. he hadn't a clue. no one knew what was going on. all they could hear was the gunfire. it was almost half a day later when they found out what was happening. so there was still a lack of organized information. there is also a lot of mistrust of the leaders. there are still a lot of factions among the leaders of the libyan government. this gets back to the 40 years. then he would have polic
inspiring presidents. i do a lot of reading about george washington. that had not been for george washington we will not of a country. i've always been very inspired by him. abraham lincoln made those decisions that are necessary at the time to pull the country back together and put us on a new course. in terms a modern day, i look at all the presidents. we are at a very critical point in our history. i think he has been the most touching for me individually. i hear pros and cons about the president. i think the american people thought they were the best candidates. i would ever say we've ever had a bad president. all is that better presidents. they did to come along at the right moment. i think they all came along in the right moment. it is a tough job. i think we have been blessed to have great presidents. at this point i think we'll open it up to the audience for questions. >> thank you. before that day in the white house how you deal with the massive attention that has befallen on your family that de? the intention is good. it is not about me. it is about actions that happen every single
were to gather once again on a lovely morning in washington, d.c., what would we like to have seen before? how do we -- what do we -- what needs to be done to reach a sustainable deal on iran's nuclear program? each of you. please take one of those. >> on the first question i think it's quite simple. there will be israeli attack. they are not doing everything. certainly not. it will be an action which the israeli says, look what happened in syria. we had this facility and blew it up. what happened? it was an attack by the security council -- syria didn't complain because they didn't want the inspector to see they had been cheating. nobody else complained. i mean, this is a really shocking reaction. that was in violation of the fundamental international law. so i think it's quite clear to me that the breakdown of the talks that israel will take a step. maybe supported by president obama. i'm very pessimistic about that. >> what's the result of that strike? what does that lead to from there? briefly. >> well, some of us are old enough to remember the complaints -- they had big proble
officials that we'll see quoted in the "washington post" or "the new york times." those are an effort to kill 10 to 15 individuals with the u.s. police plot against the u.s. so one of two things is true. neutron strikes aren't as accurate as we all told they are or the u.s. is doing something different than what it says it is doing, targeting more than just a 10 to 15 individuals. so what would any initiation and be able to do if al qaeda were to carry out an attack today? if a large-scale ground invasion is foolish in the disaster is and is really table, do they just have another missile search, which referred the same, which doesn't seem to be effective. this is the critique of the jenin battle that has been designed by individuals within the upon the administrator is not dismantling and defeating al qaeda. in yemen, was happening on the ground if al qaeda is expanding and the problem is exacerbated. so while ibrahim finished an optimistic note, although i fell back to earth with a rather pessimistic one. >> thank you, both. before it up into crushing sunni audience, what is to have

are moving in opposite directions. in part that's the ways of washington and i think we'll see a few collapses before we ultimately get together somewhere in the days before christmas on a compromise. we have been talking about marginal tax rates, which i think are a key part not only of the budget question, but a key part of the broader economic question in terms of economic growth. and i'm hopeful that any solution that comes together is going to think a lot about economic growth and not just budgets. host: ethan? guest: i think i may be a little more hopeful than alex is. i think that there's a general agreement that the sequester will happen. republicans and democrats and the president are all opposed to it happening. there's also a consensus right and left it would be bad for the economy. so i think that when we are just looking at the tax component, there are certain things that we kev knitly -- definitely need to do. patching the a.m.t. for the first year is big. if we don't get a deal on the rest of the tax cuts until early 2013, i don't think that would be the worst thing fo

only focus on. the challenge to the conversation in washington is that i think the republican party is in an odd position because their posture is let us not do this thing that is the most popular item to do. let's tax everybody or some other group of people. and the president has a very strong position. and it is also a very popular thing to do. if anything, we have a grand bargain that moves away from the politically popular thing to do toward the more politically difficult thing to do. as a progressive, i am not sure why the president would want to do that. why move and issues on taxes when the republicans will do things that are less popular. >> do you see any way that he signs an extension of the bush tax cuts? >> i find it extremely hard to see. i agree with neera. what i think i hear alex and the secretary saying -- correct me if i'm wrong -- something that is very popular, tax reform, which is that, yes, we need a new revenue and we are willing to bring in revenue to the table, but it has got to be broad based and not from increasing their rates. the problem there -- it is l
